Google’s Artificial Intelligence Engine Reads Romance Novels
Learning language from the language of love.

Romance novels make great training material for AI because they all essentially use the same plot to tell similar stories with different words. “Girl falls in love with boy, boy falls in love with a different girl. Romance tragedy,” Dai said. By reading thousands of such books, the AI can detect which sentences contain similar meanings and gain a more nuanced understanding of language. Romance novels work better than children’s learn-to-read books, since they offer a broad range of linguistic examples for the AI to draw from.

Gives new meaning to the concept of "deep learning," I guess.

Why European Children Are So Much Quieter Than Yours
The playgrounds weren’t just beautiful. They were quiet. That was what struck me when I first moved to Vienna, Austria. Children there played and laughed, but rarely

Nice piece of work. Thanks for posting this Esther, and thanks Avram for doing all the gruntwork. I remember reviewing laptops for Tom's and it's a grind to get through all those tests! Bravo!!

SDI is on the upswing. Sixty-seven percent of enterprises will increase SDI spending in 2016, according to a 451 Research report. But are organizations ready? Before you engage in a software-defined infrastructure (SDI) implementation, make sure your organization has the skilled staff in place needed for it to succeed. #SDI  

....yeah, by me! So you know it's brilliant, right?
Software-defined infrastructure adoption is on the upswing, but are organizations ready? Look for these skills among your staff to ensure success.

So basically skills a staff of sysadmin types don't have. Luckily we can shift on demand. Basically we are asking our operations departments to learn entirely new skills, and tighter integration with development teams.

1. Learn to program.
2. Learn the application level.
3. Solid network and storage virtualization skills.

Allrecipes reveals an enormous gap between foodie culture and what people actually cook.

It won't surprise you to learn that I've never actually used this site. (You lost me at "can of condensed cream of mushroom soup.")
In the world of online recipe aggregators, Allrecipes is distinctly unglamorous.
